Background

In Canada, one in seven children currently lives in low-income households (Income of Canadians, 2011, The Daily, Statistics Canada ). In 2013, British Columbia had the highest child poverty rate in Canada, with one in every five children considered statistically poor. Due to financial hardship or various family problems, these children often do not have access to the same resources as their peers do. As a result, many underprivileged children lose self-confidence and the ability to learn effectively.

 

Mission

Since 1994, Tzu Chi has collaborated with school boards all over the Lower Mainland to help provide various programs benefitting vulnerable children. By expanding on these, “The Blue Sky Project” aims to assist more children in need in building healthier and better-rounded personalities. We believe “every child deserves a chance.” At all times, therefore, Tzu Chi strive to provide underprivileged students opportunities, that they may not have been given otherwise, that will broaden their horizons and help guild them toward their dreams.

 

Programs

breakfast club

Feeding hungry stomachs with nutritious breakfast every school morning, served by Tzu Chi volunteers who provide foods as well as warmth, care and love. Tzu Chi is currently running Breakfast Programs in several elementary and secondary schools in the Lower Mainland, and is expanding the program to more schools in need.
